Firm Leaders Join National 2021 ElevateHer™ Cohort

We know how important diversity is to business success. As leaders in our industry, we are proud to announce that two of our firm leaders have been selected to join the Zweig Group’s national 2021 ElevateHer™ Cohort, a special task force comprised of individuals with a commitment to promote diversity as a means to combat recruiting and retention challenges in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry!

Despite this program only being in its second year and many new challenges relating to the pandemic, we still saw significant growth and interest in this program. I’m excited to see how this year’s class can build on the momentum from last year and also bring fresh perspectives and creativity,” said Jamie Claire Kiser, Zweig Group Managing Principal and Program Founder.

President/CEO Amy Jones and Associate Principal Jayna Duke, IIDA will spend the next several months sharing knowledge with peers to develop strategies for a more diverse workforce that encourages professionals to embrace long-term careers as architects, engineers, and industry partners.

“I’m looking forward to listening and learning from an impressive cohort of A/E/C leaders from across the country to gain new perspectives to expand our thinking and implement ideas and programs that will help our Firm, as well as our industry peers, advance our efforts and opportunities around diversity. This will not only benefit our companies, but also our people and the quality of their personal career experience.” – Amy Jones, President/CEO
